the refugees coming in from syria. why is that important for the obama administration? >> judy, when i said there were two of the three allies in the region, the third most important ally there for the united states is jordan, a tiny country, but punches above the weight. jordan security forces and intelligence forces are excellent. and i described in the earlier piece some of the role it's playing. but king abdullah's on somewhat shaky ground, the economy is bad, and part of the problem is the refugees are a huge pressure point as the king sort of eloquently said today. few of us saw the foreign minister this afternoon who said it's almost as if-- he said it's as if another eight or nine, the king said 10% has been added to our population. the foreign minister said eye asked him the question the king was asked, would you ever shut your doors? and he said we just can't do that. but i have to say my nightmare scenario is i get a call at 3:00 a.m. and i'm told there are 50,000 refugees at the border, what do we do? >> margaret, just to wrap up quickly, we know the bulk of the president's time

with election day for you, trying to blend the obama administration for the mess in this country, where the public overwhelmingly believed it was george bush and republican congress have made that mess. >> i would suggest that romney did not do a good job of letting people have the facts that would cause them to hold the obama administration accountable for their policies. i do not take the difference and what you are saying -- two beganthese to expand-- we want the conversation because we want to include questions. >> i am sorry, but having worked for governor romney and president bush, i feel obliged to make a couple of points. >> take your time. [laughter] >> the bush library opens next week, and i believe as people look at his record compared to president obama's record, it will stack up very well, and history will be kind to him. in terms of governor romney, there are things the campaign did wrong. there is a lot of reflection on that. i think governor romney would have made a good president, and i would say also in terms of lessons learned, one of the lessons i learned is instead
will harm the country. president of the economic policy institute said president obama shoulders part of the blame, i think they brought it on themselves to the extent they validated the deficit issue. >> we keep having not just republicans, but democrats agree to be on the playing field. where all we're talking about is how do we shrink the debt, how do we attack the deficits. we've gone completely off the plot. when president obama got elected to do was not deal with the deficit and debt. long-term, want to deal with it, don't want to let it get out of control. but our problem is the economy and jobs, that's where the president started. even democrats have managed to get on to this playing field where and the media and the beltway, everyone in washington agrees, we've got to talk about deficits and debt all the time. and it drives me crazy. the other thing that drives me crazy and i don't understand is why do republicans still think that it's okay to still be litigating a woman's right to choose and planned parent hootd and all this other stuff that doesn't help them. i don't even g

what this country needs, an independent voice for obama. >> i am committed to president obama and vice-president biden. i think he's a brilliant man. he is now able to flower more as the president i knew he could be. >> someone who will never forget where she came from. >> and tennessee is home. >> kentucky. >> is home. >> someone who knows what's good for us. >> a lot-- >> her own grandmother says she's a hollywood liberal. isn't that what we need? ashley judd, an obama following, hollywood liberal from tennessee, kentucky. >> tennessee is home. >> and run, ashley, run, and the soon to be great senator from tennessee. fox news contributor. >> did you say former. >> tamara holder and jedidiah. >> i'm in charge. >> obviously not-- >> i'm in charge here. >> do i have to join you by the way in calling for her to run, right off the bat i will go out there and we need motivational help. one of the most polarizing figures they could put out there. it would be an enormous gift to mcconnell. >> sean: a gift. >> really, okay, let me educate you about a recent poll. because clearly you don't-- >
.com/interview. >>> president obama is wrapping up his last day in jordan tonight. the king expressed concerns about the civil war in syria. he says the small country is taking in 7,000 refugees every day. 460,000 in the past two years. president obama has pledged millions of dollars in aid. mr. obama answered a question from the audience about why the u.s. hasn't used force against the regime. >> the united states often finds itself in a situation where if it goes in military then it is criticized and if it doesn't then people say why aren't you. >> earlier in the the day the president visited the church of the nativity with palestinian leader. the holocaust memorial with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. before president obama left israel diplomatic kudos to him. he was able to persuade netanyahu to apologize. the two allies have had an icy relationship. >>> small airports are being forced to close the air traffic control as the latest fallout in the sequester cuts. the faa has ordered 149 control towers to shut down beginning in just the next couple of weeks. most of our local airports were spare td. sacr
in this country. when you look from president obama to president clinton to hillary clinton to rob portman to dick cheney, cleric mccaskill, jon huntsman. there are a tremendous number of federal officials, highly visible people in both parties. not only saying people should have this right, which is the moral position, but also saying something that i think creates an incredible opening for the public which is i changed my mind. people get in different ways. but that is also really different. in the civil rights era which is obviously the sort of historical precedent that people look to. the court was way out front. sometime in unanimous decisions like brown, in school busing, obviously in a lot of areas of extending rights to minorities. they were way ahead of both parties. you go back to the original civil rights raer and both parties were table because we lived in a completely racist, elite structure. and so the court was really one of the only elite institutions in the country that ran against that. while i understand the broader context, i think this is a supreme court that by that historica
making peace with countries beyond them -- >> two states for two people, president obama said that's the key to peace between israel and palestinians. >> even as the president pushes for peace and tows that line, he admits there are complications in the region. john from jerusalem, again, the president stressing the right of people to be free in a land of their own and a message of those who oppose the jewish state. let's play this before we come to you, john. >> make no mistake, those who adhere to the ideology of rejecting israel's right to exist, they might as well reject the earth beneath them or the sky above because israel's not going anywhere. >> that line got a standing ovation. did the president succeed in his efforts to reassure the israeli people of his commitment? >> i think there's no question, michael, he has reassured the israeli government and the israeli people. the question is can he bring the palestinians to the table as well as part of a peace process or is this fence mending new image building in israel? you heard the president's line, you could say that line w
democracy. was mentioned that obama's first trip to an arab country will be to a monarchy after the arab uprising. tot message does this send the jordanian people? how will be perceived -- many are still asking for new election law, increased local representation. what about bob crane -- bahrain where the u.s. has been silent on many human rights abuses? how will he ensure the people that he is still committed to the values of human rights and democracy? the best posture on this is the iranianike issue. this is not an issue for one place that he goes to. we should have a set of common principles that we are talking about, repeating all the time in the area. .es, he is going to a monarchy yes, we have a very strong strategic stake in the well- the kingjordan and of and his government. the president in public should emphasize our commitment to jordan, he should also emphasize our commitments to a set of principles and how we want to do them fulfilled everywhere. i think the focus should be on how can we work with jordan to improve their governance? there are few things that will have more
. that was clear. the prime minister netanyahu said that that country's nuclear program is a grave threat to israel and to the world. president obama reiterated that while there is still time for diplomacy, time is running short. >> the united states will continue to consult closely is. and i will repeat all options are on the table. we will do what is is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> shepard: and tonight questions remain about exactly how much time there is before it is just too late to keep iran from building a bomb. james rosen with the news from washington tonight. james? >> shep, good evening. complicating the two leaders' efforts to project unity was president obama's interview on israeli television last week. in which mr. obama said iran has over a year or so to go before it can claim an operational nuclear weapon if it's even made a decision to build one that raised questions about the differing time lines. the white house and jerusalem have on issue that. differences that the president today acid usely played down. -- unpress -- unprecedented. there i
in mission about what president obama means when he says all options are on the table in dealing with this country. the president, accding to press is prepared to strike. also tonight, the whiteouse assault on the second amendment continues, even as democratic support is slipping away. congress today voting to avoid a government shut down. congressman marlon strops men of inana joins us here to talk about the budget and the second amendment. the chinese nationals suspected of espionage and nasa has his day in court. the latest is that trial enters its 305th day. attorney state jenkins joins us. joining us now to discuss what geopolitical approach the united states should be pursuing and what we should be paying atntion to, obama's claman a piece is the only path to true security. of course, objective of against iran syria benjamin netanyahu and the ceo of ge be international. a fox use digital politics editor. gentlemen,hank you for being with us. if i may, i want to start with you. benjamin nanyahu could not have been too pleased with whoever else happened. president obama was s
think mr. obama could and should overcome whatever has made him hesitate. we in this country not only don't have a federal employment program, republicans and democrats have not even put it on the floor to debate it as an important issue, even though it comes out of our own history. i say put our people to work. they want to work. the federal reserve says 20% of our factory and office space is sitting unused. we have people who want to work, the tools, equipment, and raw materials for them to work with. lord knows we need the wealth that they could produce. put them to work and make it a national issue. >> where does the money come from? >> roosevelt went to the wealthy and corporations and said to them, "you must give me the money to take care of the massive people because if you don't, we're going to have a catastrophe in this country. we're going to have a social revolution." my argument is, let's go back to the same tax rates that roosevelt imposed, or at least in that neighborhood, which is much higher on wealthy people and much higher on corporations than we have today. that is
.4% and in india trading down by 0.7% on lingering concerns in terms of the country's political events. back to you. >> okay. thank you very much for that. coming up, speaking of political events, president obama makes his first official trip to israel as a u.s. president. this after a recent poll shows only 10% of israelis view him favorably. we'll be live in jerusalem with more when we come back. don't go anywhere. zap technology. arrival. with hertz gold plus rewards, you skip the counters, the lines, and the paperwork. zap. it's our fastest and easiest way to get you into your car. it's just another way you'll be traveling at the speed of hertz. >>> >>> now the tiny island of cyprus' finance minister is appealing to russia for help. fresh off talks this morning, negotiations were constructive but no deal has been struck for a loan or further aid at this time. steve sedgwick spoke with the finance minister after that meeting. here's what he had to say. >> a very good first meeting. very constructive. very honest discussion. we underscored how difficult the situation is and we'll now continue our
into that country slamming a border town. as president obama meets with palestinian leaders today in the west bank. conor powell is live in the town of sirot, israel, southern part of the country where police say one of those rockets landed. conor. hello. >> reporter: well, bill, israeli officials actually upped the number to four rockets that have been fired from gaza into southern israel earlier today. while much of the physical damage is fairly minor, bill, it was damage to a patio. there is the emotional damage. this is the second time this house here in sderot has been damaged in the last four or five months. there is the symbolic damage. fragile ceasefire agreed to in thanksgiving has been broken. no doubt this volley of rockets that came from gaza was tied to president obama's trip to israel and the west bank earlier today. bill: you wonder what has been said even out of gaza or hamas. what are they trying it say to this, conor? >> reporter: bill it is clear. we don't know if it was hamas or islamic jihad but this is the palestinians in gaza saying don't forget about us. we're part of the e
both in the united states and israel. the question of how obama felt or feels about israel has been a live political question in both countries, and here to have this kind of engagement with young israeli students is a way of trying to reach out to say, look i'm not an unfriendly president, i really mean when i say -- it's in the a cliche that when i talk about having your back, it's much more heartfelt. so the mood music is good. the question about policy is a different story. jenna: it's interesting to note when the president began his first term he made the speech in cairo to the muslim world. now he's beginning his second term with this speech to israelis specifically. what do you make of that juxtaposition? does it signal anything truly different between the first and second term? >> let me be an optimist for a second. jenna: that is a new thing for you i know. >> hard for me to do. part of the problem with obama's first term is he spent a lot of time coddling our enemies and united states andtting distance our friends. maybe he understands really what you have to do is run an
at 4:31. >> new this morning, president obama is wrapping up a three-day trip to israel with self symbolic stops in the country. the president paid respects to israel's heros and victims of the holocaust reaffirming the jewish state right to exist and visited the brave of firm israeli rabin who was assassinated in 1995 and the grave of the founder of modern zionism who died in
of the week to president obama. because i think he came off okay in israel. israel a country where public opinion is not favorable for him. he got smooth reception and smoothed over rough patch with benjamin netanyahu. that is my winner. loser is chancellor angela merkel of germany. whose government took something out of the crisis in cyprus, took something that was a problem and made it worse. now everybody hates germany more than they did before. >> shannon: nina? >> my winner would be netanyahu. that this president, the u.s. president had the worst relations historically ever. not by israel but an extension to bebe. the loser is dianne feinstein who really had high hopes for passing an assault weapons ban, particularly after the shooting of school children in connecticut. the democratic leadership told her no way. >> charles? >> i agree the winner is the prime minister of israel. but for different reasons. obama essentially said the palestinian leadership stop using the excuse of settlemen settlements. way not to enter in negotiations and you should and in the end the settlement issue
of the election of president obama. everyone in the country seemed like they voted for him. this was the backdrop. the question is, how does one of let chris christie in a place like new jersey and the bob macdonald and a place like virginia? very different east coast states. one is southern, one is no.. one is blue, the other trending purple. how you do that? it really was the message. the message was getting back to the fundamental idea of liberty, freedom, and opportunity. individual being empowered, not the government. having the wherewithal off to thethat in a way that message was the same, although translated differently. in other words, you speak the language of the people in the community in which you find them. i cannot, for example, go in front of a bunch of state and government employees talk about i want less government. all i said to them is i want to fire you. you talk about an efficient government that is responsive to people. that is a very different conversation. it is taking the message that off its core and translating it to people so they can understand it in their own languag
time that president obama has visited that country as president. among the discussions for israel's leaders, how to contain iran's growing nuclear program. the president will also visit the west bank and jordan. >> a former army officer arrested and facing 20 years in prison. the justice department says benjamin bishop shared classified nuclear defense information with a young chinese woman living in hawaii on a visa. prosecutors say she does not have security clearance and isn't allowed to see those documents. bishop had been working for a defense contractor as a civilian employee. >>> sad news to report right now. the miami heat have won 23 games in a row. the second longest winning streak in nba history. they kept their streak alive with a victory over the celtics. celtics did not have kevin garnett. this was not a fair fight. still 23 wins is impressive. lebron james and company have a long time to go to break the all-time record held by the lakers, they won 33 straight games. >> really feeling for you. >> soledad o'brien who apparently feels a kinship to the miami heat. >> i
attacks with more than 50 people. it almost is that there is no unified state in the country anymore. three straight states that are not at peace with each other. >> you are in israel, another nation where the u.s. influence diminished. this is a historic visit for president obama to go over there. prime minister netanyahu, his party did not farewell in the last elections. both men seem to be tied up with a lot of doe mostic affairs. what is the sense with president obama coming over there and he ran the central issue for common israelis these days. >> well, the bond between the united states and israel is still very strong even if the personal chemistry between netanyahu and president obama is not strong and it has been widely reported they don't have a very good working relationship. one of the main reasons for coming not just to israel, but jordan and the west bank right now. that was for the united states to shore up friends. the united states still as a friend of israel. if you look back at the larger regional issues, the chaos around us. the united states is worried about its f
attacks on president obama are obscuring serious problems in this country. does the president live well in the white house? yes, he does. is there money wasted it? you bet there is. every other president in history lived in comfort and president bush the younger had a bigger budget than barack obama does. this is a trivial pursuit and michel michele bachmann made a mistake pursuing it. >> he said she needs to focus on bigger issues. >>> will gitmo ever close? facebook.com/carol cnn or tweet me @carolcnn. a lot of heat with this question. keep it coming. you can rent a car without a reservation... and without a line. now that's a fast car. it's just another way you'll be traveling at the speed of hertz.

countries won't take them. what do you do? >> dana: president obama promised to close it but then reality hit. and the other reason they need to upgrade it, some of the prisoners now that they have been there ten or 11 years need geriatric care. freddie they need more shuffleboard. >> dana: bingo hall. >> greg: this is the island of lost terrorists. remember island of lost toys? island of lost terrorists. where do you put them. for president obama, gitmo is the employee you can't stand but you can't live without. it's finally come down, rea realizing that maybe i was too hard over bush over this. >> dana: they haven't added prisoners because of the drone policy. it means we haven't been bringing them to gitmo to get intel, because we basically just get rid of them. if you break down the number, $150 million. one reason it's expensive is everything costs more. >> greg: try to flip it. >> eric: what do you do, you leave them there and you don't offer them soccer fields and volleyball courts. you let it -- they're terrorists. enemy combat tant. you have don't make it easier for them. you mak
against humanity. so the two sides have been at a war of words. president obama said these are important allies to the united states. and it is important to him that those two countries have normal relations. the two biggest and most important democracies in the region so obviously, it is in the united states' best interests to have them have relations. so that was probably the big success in the short term that the president can take home. that he simply has the two leaders of israel and turkey talking again. and to borrow a pun, talking turkey. >> okay, chuck, always great to have you on. we turn to professor of mideast politics at the london skoofl economics. also, the author of obama and the middle east. the end of manager's moment. i want to play a little tape of obama talking about israel and then get you to come. >> we have the choice to acquiesce to evil or make real our solemn vow, never again. we have the choice to ignore what happens to others or to act on behalf of others. and to continually examine in ourselves whatever dark places there may be, that may lead to such actions
barack obama's parents got married in 1960 in hawaii. so the country changed. and that law is not only unconstitutional now, it's unthinkable. and the question is, is same-sex marriage moving in the same direction? at the moment, it does. but it's certainly not there yet. >> jeffrey, i know you don't like to make predictions about these things, but what do you think is going to happen? do you have any idea? >> well, i think the most likely result is that the court will overturn the defense of marriage act, will say that that law is so discriminatory, it's unconstitutional. the proposition 8 case is a much tougher call. there are a lot more moving parts. they could rule just in california, they could rule for the whole country. they could dodge the issue on procedural grounds. so that one, i'm not even going to venture a guess on. >> all right. again, thank you, jeffrey toobin. >> okay. >>> a well-respected conservative senator, the latest republican to endorse gay marriage. are we seeing the beginning of a shift among republicans? we're asking the former chairman of the log cabin repub
the -- difficulties of the personal relationship between obama and netanyahu, i'm sure these discussions are conduct order a very prank and professional basis but countries, vital nation security interests are involved. i think both men recognize the personal can't get in the way of that. i don't think that there is any doubt that israel sees a much shorter time frame, especially given its own who are limited military capabilities. whoever is right on the intelligence and must be clear we don't have perfect intelligence. iran could be a lot closer than anybody. we have greater capabilities to stop iran's nuclear program than israel does. unless israel is prepared to depend on the united states which would represent a massive break from israel's strategy over its entire history, netanyahu is faced with a decision i think in the very mere future. this year probably one way or the other do i attack iran's nuclear program or do i not? >> what if he does without -- u.s. backing orders how much? what does that mean? >> i don't think that israel will ask permission. they didn't ask permission when they des
we've seen happen in greece and other countries. that want to talk about the impact of obama's views on the. another area where people are educated. it can make a difference just like educating people with regards to the deficits were facing and that deficit supposedly help the economy. before i get into this, we both taught at the university of chicago law school. the first time i met him i introduced myself and say you are the kind of guy. as idiotic as silk. and i had no he would help me out with the city of chicago since i'd heard that. they said maybe we can get together for lunch sometime. but he kind of wrinkled his face, turned his back to me and walked away and that was the end of our first conversation. i have to say rinne two and 20 other times and it's pretty much the way all our conversations went. it is not thinking i would be getting christmas cards or anything else from him. i was not as a retired part of it is that got the strong impression when i would run into him that he viewed me as evil because of the gun issue. he had very strong opinions on the.

and israelis know each other in some other countries where there are lots of changes going on. >> robin, thanks so much. robin wright there. interesting too when it comes to jordan the king told president obama that now 10% of jordan's population is syrian refugees. >> unbelievable. >> the biggest refugee camp is jordan's fifth biggest city. >> and the fact that's spilling over into the region is the biggest problem, yes. >> absolutely. >> thank you. >>> just ahead on "around the world," it is an ad that shows held behind the wheel with the kardashian sisters tied up in the trunk. one problem, ford never approved this ad, so it did not run. but it's causing a lot of controversy. we're going to look at how this got released. >>> welcome back everyone. update you on stories making news around the world this morning. >> a fishing boat capsizes and kills a boy and woman. there were about 2 of 100 people crowded on that boat hoping to reach australia for asylum. >> they were coming from afghanistan where they get on the usually unsea worthy boats. u.s. customs officials boarded the boat and it was s
.s. business. >> what about the minimum wage in this country, howard? is 725 enough? lots of pushes to take that up to $9 as president obama as talked about. >> i think the minimum wage issue is a double-edged sword. and what i would not want to see is the minimum wage go up and as a result of that employers starting to hire less people or cutting people's hours. and so you have to be very careful of the unintended consequences. on balance, i am a supporter of the minimum wage going up, but i think we have to be very, very careful. and i would say in terms of the health care law that is going to go into effect, there are significant unintended consequences that was not thought out as much as it should have that will significantly affect the cost structure of small businesses. and this is an example where i think you've got to be very careful with this kind of transformation legislation that ultimately perhaps has a negative effect on the economy. >> before you go, you've got to give us some reaction to this comic book basically about your life. you're now a superhero, howard. >> that's one
the monarchy, so could create some destabilizing factors in his country. certainly the concern about who those rebels are and what sort of government they would form is a concern shared by the obama administration. at the same time, both president obama and king abdullah have called for president assad to accept down and have made it clear that they don't see much of a future for him in running that country. >> always good to see you. thanks so much. >> today's tweet of the day has to do with march madness. in case you didn't hear, 14th seed harvard earned its first ever ncaa victory last night. so today this is what the harvard lampoon tweeted -- america, we are sorry for messing up your brackets and your financial system and everything else. seed harvard earned its first >>> hard to believe it's been ten years since the shock and au campaign that laufrgesed the iraq war. i was on the air as it was all unfolding. this clip is from the morning after the war began. >> let's get you up to date on what is happening. it started at 9:30 eastern time last night when president bush gave the order and
today, secretary kerry was meeting with the australian foreign minister, talking about other countries, including our closest allies, france and great britain, pressuring the u.s. to do more to help and arm the syrian rebels. >> we do not stand, president obama has made it clear, that the united states does not stand in the way of other countries that made a decision to provide arms, whether it's france or britain or others. he believes that we need to change president assad's calculation. >> there has been disagreement in the past in, within the cabinet. we now know that hillary clinton and the c.i.a. director and others wanted some, and the defense team as well, leon panetta, wanted to arm the rebels. the president is still dead set against that. we don't know where secretary kerry comes down. is this an issue where the president is going to have to move under pressure from allies? >> i think this is an issue that the people at the white house wrestle with every single day. the human cost of assad's actions are horrific. and we struggle with the human toll and hearing these stories f
on in the past years between the two countries. >> i don't think there's any fence mending on this trip. i think that president obama comes with two messages, one, make more concessions to the palestinians, and two, don't even think about attacking iran's nuclear weapons program. so, if people could hear the conversation that president obama and prime minister netanyahu are about to have, i think that obama's 10% approval rating in israel would go even lower. >> greta: ambassador, thank you. always nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. >> greta: okay. now to roger ailes, the man who created and launched fox news in 1996 and has been ever since. a new book gives readers an upclose look at the fox news president. and the author of "roger ailes off camera", nice to talk to you. >> nice to talk to you, too. tell me, when did you first begin talking to roger ailes about this book? >> i talked to roger, i guess in the summer of 2011. >> greta: all right. prior to 2011, i assume that he had some sort of thoughts about what you would be learning when you began the book. did anything surprise you diagnose
question. let's look ahead to tomorrow when the president will be traveling to jordan. president obama has been very care wfl the u.s. involvement in syria but jordan is of course the country dealing with the syrian refugee crisis. more than 450,000 syrians have fled to jordan so far. what do you expect to come out of tomorrow's meeting with king abdullah? >> well, king abdullah is a key player in the middle east. jordan has always been helpful to middle east peace process. i think again, a reinforcement of an already strong relationship, countries like jordan help with the syrian issue on refugees. you have to keep jordan involved because they can be very constructive. again, their relationship is good. but being in the region, not going to jordan, especially with the syrian situation exploding, is not a good sign. so the president has covered his bases. he's been to the palestinian authority. a very strong trip and israel's symbolism, personal connection with bibi, laying out new policy. and then with the king of jordan, going more into regional issues like syria and iran makes a lot of
. but sometimes sources won't allow it. you take what you can get. >> have you counted the number of countries you have traveled to? guest: about 120. host: one of the questions you posed to president obama on the affordable care act, syria's bill plante.-- here is bill plante. >> thank you mr. president. anybody on capitol hill will say that there is no chance that the american jobs act in its current state passes either house. you have been out on the campaign trail baying away to pass this bill. it begins to look like you're campaigning and following the harry truman model against the do-nothing congress instead of negotiating. are you negotiating? >> i am open to negotiations. what is also true is they need to do something. the question then is will congress do something? if congress does something, i cannot run against a do-nothing congress. if congress does nothing, then it is not a matter of me running against them. the american people will run them out of town. host: did he answer your question? guest: no, he turned to his advantage. the question really was is there any point in continuing
obama heading to israel this week. his first visit to the country as commander in chief. one item likely on the agenda, iran. and its continued pursuit 6 nuclear weapons. "washington post" reporting iran is doubling done on its efforts in the face of severe sanctions with one top cleric saying iran will resist air rrrogant powers. what steps should the united states and israel take to stop iran there developing a nuclear weapon. >> >> you're asking easy questions today. i think the answer is there are no steps. i mean, you could gas up the airplanes and get ready for air strikes, but i'm not sure that will keep iran from getting a nuclear weapon. it will certainly delay them. this country is very intent despite diplomacy, despite sanctions, despite threats of air strikes, they're intent to becoming a nuclear pow person so he we might begin to consider what does the world look like with iran as a nuclear power. wi because they are intent on being a nuclear power. >> i think a lot of the focus in terms of the sanctions has many about the u.s. and western civilization. it's really time now
'll be a majority- minority country, and in both 2008 and 2012, president obama won a combined 80 percent of the votes of all minority groups. the rnc cannot and will not write off any demographic, community, or region of this country. so here are some actions we're taking, one, establish senior level advisory councils for hispanic, african american, and asian americans that will serve as working groups to share best practices and have a constant dialogue in each community. two, establish swearing-in citizenship teams to introduce new citizens to the gop after naturalization ceremonies. first impressions count. three, at the recommendation of the project, talk regularly and openly with groups with which we've had minimal contact in the past. lulac. the urban league. the naacp. naleo. la raza. four, work with state parties and sister committees to build a recruitment program for minority candidates. the report underscores the need for greater recruitment. five, hire communications staff to promote the minority leaders in our party and bolster our messaging efforts in publications that appe
of the entire capitalistic system. some on the right believe that president obama is actively working toward that. certainly senator bernie sanders of vermont wants socialism in this country and so do most of his compatriots on the crazy caucus. yet, americans continue to elect them. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. reaction. joining us from lower manhattan dr. marc lamont hill who teaches at columbia university. do you think the program the caucus is putting forth will ever happen in this country? >> no. i think that's a template for a kind a progressive provision. like the tea party. it's not what's going to happen it represents a particular framework ideology happens somewhere in the middle. i wouldn't freak out about the cpc budget coming through. >> bill: did i sound like i was freaking out because i didn't want to sound like i was freaking out. >> you never sound like you are freaking out. i'm worried about the millions of people watching this who think that suddenly there is going to be tax seizures. >> let's both of us remind everybody not to freak out. you are sympath

much damage, but they served as a reminder that the president is visiting a country very much under fire. ♪ president obama arrived this morning in the west bank. his message here, the importance of peace between the israelis and the palestinians. but fears of war have dominated the trip specifically fears that iran is dangerously close to getting a nuclear weapon. >> the greatest danger is a nuclear iran. >> in order to stop iran's nuclear programs peacefully diplomacy and sanctions must be augmented by a clear and credible threat of action. >> reporter: when it comes to iran, the president says the u.s. stands firm with israel. >> we agree on our goal. we do not have a policy of containment when it comes to a nuclear iran. our policy is prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. >> reporter: even if it takes a military strike against iran. >> i will repeat all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> reporter: president obama has had a frosty relationship with prime minister netanyahu, but on this trip b
this family is making for political asylum in this country should be granted, but the obama administration's view is that individual liberty is not a valid basis for political asylum claim for home schooling. >> anna: they're trying to do it the right way, right? >> they are. >> anna: they're trying to go about this, go through the legal hoops and go through all the red tape and all of that. but they're running into some issues. you do have a hearing coming up a month and a at this a-- and day away. how are you preparing for that? >> like any argument, you practice a lot. i argued a lot of amel late cases. -- appellate cases. i think we have a pretty good chance. the first judge ruled for the family. he said this was a case of religious persecution. the obama administration appealed. they won the second round. we're appealing on the third round. >> anna: who is it that you blame for this? >> it's really the attorney general of the united states that's responsible. it's done in his name. he makes the final decision in this. and i can't figure out any good reason why in the midst of of the c
it scandalous. he is accused of taking illegal donations from the country's richest woman, liliane bettencourt. if he is found guilty, he faces up to three years in prison and a fine of about $480,000. sarkozy denies the allegations. tourk obama is expected to the church of nativity in bethlehem with palestinian president mahmoud abbas in about an hour. together, they visited the tomb modernlate father of zionism and also the tomb of yitzhak rabin. we understand that obama will now be driving from jerusalem to bethlehem instead of taking the chopper. why is that you'd what does his visit to bethlehem include? -- why is that? what does his visit to bethlehem include? >> now a wild sand storm has .lown across the west bank not able to travel by helicopter. he will travel by road. this should give president obama another viewpoint of the and he activity in the west bank. he's likely to see some very large israeli settlements, settlements that encroach on palestinian land surrounding bethlehem. he will be seeing the church of the nativity, including the door of humility. this is a very low door th

, but in the senate, a measure to repeal obama care was voted down. yuma? >> molly, thank you very much. >>> overseas now, and growing concerns in syria after rulers this week of a possible chemical weapons attack in that country. this video was released by syrian government which claims it shows victims of a rebel chemical weapons attack that claim has not been independently verified at this time. but president obama has said that the use of chemical weapons would be "a game changer." so is it time for the u.s. to step in and use military force? joining us now for a fair and balanced debate, democratic congressman adam schiff and republican congressman peter king. gentlemen, welcome. great to see you both today. >> good to see both of you. >> congressman king, let me begin with you. the president calls this a game changers, if confirmed that sir gentleman using chemical weapons right now. what does that specifically mean to you? >> well, first of all if they are using them, and it's being looked at very carefully, this is a game changer it does cross a red line and means action will have to be taken
at all between the senate and house plan? >> the major difference is that, obama and most of the country that voted for him really thinks that a time of recession that we're coming out of it that we should be creating jobs and not laying off people just with cuts. that is the difference. the major difference between the senate and the house. republicans say no taxes, no money, no investment. well, that's absolutely ridiculous. in order to get people back to work and having disposable income, you've got to invest in education, the infrastructure, the bridges and the tunnels. there's no money in the republican, because they say that we're taking care of revenues. where the heck that is in the constitution that you can't raise revenues, i don't know. but it's not right. >> i want to switch gears and talk to you about guns a bit. we just talked about it with our last group of folks. 85% of folks in this country when you ask about background checks they say they support the idea. background checks aren't a done deal. looks like the assault weapons ban is not going to happen. ban on high capac

eight years of obama, new leadership around the country that don't have the same affection for the clintons that her school or her age class does, how does she get them enthusiastic enough to face a republican opponent if they can come up with a formidable one. she has a lot to weigh. i think she can make the right decision but it's not a slam dunk decision. >> kelly, what is the sense in washington? the clintons, either president clinton or secretary of state hillary clinton have been on the scene every day there for two decades and now they are gone for a moment. what is the sense, the video av? >> i think her making this decision i think you'd see a new generation of democrats who would flood to the possibility of that first woman in the white house. i think that is something that would awaken a lot of enthusiasm and even possibly some of those sort of suburban republican women who would be open to looking at her as a possible candidate. i think reverend sharpton's point is strong about the idea that talent that was around them many of those folks have moved on to the pr

of chuck hagel's maiden visit as defense secretary to that sad country. yet the obama team and america's foreign policy cognizenti, can't seem to draw the obvious conclusions, stop letting these karzai guys play us as suckers and speed up our exit and stop wasting american lives and dollars. that is not very diplomatic but comes from the former head here and probably, as you probably know what a fair number of people think. is that the right prescription? in other words, he is going beyond something that you're talking about. >> it is pretty close except for some of the rhetoric because i don't think we're wasting lives and dollars there. i think we have had a mission. that mission was to remove of the taliban from control of afghanistan. and it was to try to provide the afghan security forces with the numbers and the capabilities, the skills, that they need to prevent the taliban from taking control again. that mission has, for the most part successful militarily. the part which will help to sustain it which is to have a government in afghanistan which is less corrupt, has not been as
